Name the 3 plant organs
The leaves, stem and roots
1 of 7
What functions do these organs carry out?
The leaves are the main organ for photosynthesis. The roots absorb minerals and water from the soil and store nutrients. The roos also anchor the plant. The stem transports minerals and water around the plant. It also elevates the leaves.
2 of 7
Name 3 tissues in a leaf
Epidermal tissue, mesophyll tissue and transport tissue
3 of 7
Name the function of each tissue
The mesophyll tissue carries out photosynthesis through the cholorplasts absorbing sunlight. The epidermal tissue covers the plant and the transport tissue transports substances around the plant.
4 of 7
Name the two transport cells
Xylem and phloem tissue
5 of 7
What do the two different transport cells do?
The xylem transports water and minerals. The phloem transports molecules made in the plant.
6 of 7
Draw out a diagram of the leaf structure
Should include: phloem, xylem,mesophyll spongy and mesophyll palisade,epidermal,
